Sky Sands is an Air Ride course in Kirby's Air Ride. It is an intermediate-difficulty Air Ride course with a moderate number of obstacles, alternate paths and shortcuts. The secondary music track that plays here is the theme of The Arena from Kirby Super Star.
Sky Sands is a windy, chaotic desert in Dream Land. It has an oasis, and many sand and rock formations presumably sculpted by the wind, as well as more fantastical elements like sand waterfalls, sand whirlpools and rapidly moving sand rivers. Here, racers must cross through many windblown dunes and the spacious interior of a ruined temple-like structure, full of falling sand. A large, slow-moving sand crab serves as a ramp to reach an upper level with a Boost Panel, and a small underground shortcut is opened by a unique switch panel disguised as scenery. Near the end of the track are pillars of rock that will fall down when racers approach, which become jump ramps once fallen, but can also slow the racers down if reached too quickly. Some of Sky Sands' most striking visual features are the large bones of unknown creatures, spike-filled whirlpools of colored sand that can slightly spin the racers if touched, and large models of the sun and moon that appear to be created from scrap metal.
